decreasing keeping pattern correct
Hello, I am new to this site. I have been knitting for quite a few years and thought I was good at it..........until now!
I am knitting a cardi for a one year old which is a lacy one, 16 rows make the pattern, and I have to decrease 1 stitch at the BEGINNING of every 5th row keeping pattern correct. I started with 27 stitches and now have 24 left, I need to get to 19! I am stuck on the next row and have to keep unpicking it, the wool is now getting quite fluffy as you can imagine!!!! The row I am stuck on is as follows: K3, yfwd s1 k1 psso k4, yfwd s1 k1 psso k4, yfwd s1 k1 psso k4, yfwd s1 k1 psso k4 (27 stitches), I now have 23 and need 23 when I have finished as this is not a decrease row but I don't know where to start, I have even written the row out longhand going backwards and I get the 'holes' in the wrong place! Is there anyone out there that can help a very frustrated knitter? Thankyou in advance x
